A LOT of my favorite guys are not in the Tour Championship this year. Along with Rory maybe not being in it. I won't have the interest like I used to. Still am no Dustin Johnson fan and I think he is going to dominate this tournament. Would be shocked if the winner is anybody other than him.

Can't wait for this.  It's a weird one, for sure;  the reigning Masters champion didn't even qualify!  I wonder how many Tour Championships there have been since the advent of the FedEx Cup where the reigning Masters Champion didn't qualify.  Did the reigning UKBO or USO champions qualify?  I'd have to check.  I believe the reigning PGA Champ did qualify.

Today is a big letdown, as I realize this event goes Friday-Monday ☹️

Me too. I checked the PGA Tour App and it lists DJ at -10. I thought I missed the first round.

The reigning Masters, US Open and Open Championship winners are all not in this event, nor are 4 of the top 20 in OWGR - Fleetwood, Fitzpatrick, Woods, Rose (though I don't think that is unusual as guy who primarily play the Euro tour don't qualify)

"That birdie moves him to one under, nine back of the lead."  Still so weird to hear, but it reminds me of a great trivia point.

When was the first time on the PGA Tour that tournaments in consecutive weeks were won by a Palmer and a Watson?

Most people would guess in the 60s or 70s, and they'd be wrong -- they're thinking of Arnold Palmer, whose final PGA Tour win was the 1973 Bob Hope, and Tom Watson, whose first PGA Tour win was the 1974 Western Open.  So it wasn't them.

It was Ryan and Bubba in January 2010 (Sony Open and Bob Hope).

It is interesting to watch these guys play short shots out of the green side Bermuda...something those of us who play in this area are all too familiar with.

Did Rory improve his lie on 18 when he duffed it in the water?  Moving back out of the rough to the fairway.  Didn’t Tiger get called out for doing the same at the Masters a few years ago?  Looked strange to me.

You aren't required to drop anywhere but in the general area. I haven't seen it yet but it sounds like Rory dropped within the relief area and in the general area. Perfectly fine.

Tiger (that was me, btw) dropped intentionally two yards back when he was required to drop as near as possible to the spot from which he played the previous spot.

    • Probably. Although some teens chose to defy their parents and get immunized. Less likely, I'm guessing, with younger kids.
    • Probably will fall along the lines of what their parents chose to do. 
    • As someone who did this last summer and then had a tantalizing but disappointing season this year, remember that you need time to make the major mechanical adjustments sink in but then you also need time to learn how to hit shots with those new mechanics. Or at least I did (after doing all my mechanics work into a net). On your swing, it isn't nearly wide enough at the top. Among other things, that makes it way harder to shallow the club on the down swing. And it's really difficult to change from a steep to a shallow down swing regardless! At the top your right arm should be making at most an 80˚ angle. And many (most?) are closer to 90˚. The drill that got me over the hump was to take a kids swim floaty and put it just above my elbow such that at 90˚ I was solidly starting to squeeze it and it felt like a major squeeze if I tried to close my elbow any more than that. Then you'll really feel it in your swing when you get narrow and fold your elbow at the top. It'll feel like you're taking like 1/2 swings in order not to fold too much.
